Fresco Gradient / rolags - 100g

Only 3 left in stock



This colourway was put together as part of the 'Ancient Artists' Club. The inspiration was the beautiful fresco of a reclining nymph found on the wall of 'The House of the Golden Bracelet' in Pompeii.

As this fresco was preserved by the volcanic eruption of 79AD, the fresco muct be at least 1943 years old - which counts as ancient to me :-)

I loved the muted tones of this fresco, shades of light gret, deep grey and a dusky pink in her rather flimsy 'clothing'.

The colourway is made from carefully blending tussah silk with light grey Shetland. The blending forms a beautifully open and soft blend, which will be gorgeous to spin.

The Shetland fibre in this blend will felt. If you do not wish it to, hand wash in cool water.
